"Great diabetic clinic"

About: Barns Medical Practice

(as the patient),

My practice is Barns Medical Practice, Dalblair Road, Ayr.

They do a 6th monthly Diabetic clinic which is excellent and very thorough with all the checks - weight, blood & urine samples etc. - with excellent nursing, doctors and staff who have looked after my Diabetic condition for many years.

The Practice adjusts my medication as required to keep me in good health and looked after my other ailments too as I suffered a stroke a while back & I am 66 years old. I hope this shows how great the care I have received from the practice and how it’s been over the past 35 years since moving to Ayr.
